Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I am here to assist you. Okay, when you push on the speed selector does it still click in to each speed position?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Yes. It slides easily into each gear.
Expert:  The Appliance Guy replied 4 years ago.
Okay, and it only spins on high speed no matter what selection?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Exactly. It starts out fast and just wants to continue to speed up no matter what speed I put it on.
Expert:  The Appliance Guy replied 4 years ago.
Okay, your problem is your speed control board. You need to replace the board and you will be good to go. I am sending you a link to a diagram and the board is #19 on the diagram. I am here for further assistance and thank you for your time and patience, Randy.

Thanks. Sounds like something I need to order. Is there any other possibility? Just want to be prepared in case this doesn't work. It doesn't look like an inexpensive part.
Expert:  The Appliance Guy replied 4 years ago.
The only other thing is the motor itself but 99% of the time when it goes bad it will either run extremely slow or not at all. you can also go to a site called repairclinic.com to get the part if it is cheaper. Great job and again thank you.
